(screaming and yelling).
6:02 pm

6:06 pm
every right to be here. >> reporter: but you are going to upset people. >> that's their problem. you know, if they have a problem -- you know. they seem to be upset about a lot of things that are completely irrational. we're not -- we don't have an answer for that. if they want to hold a rally where i'm from, they're welcome to do it. we might have people come out and do a counter demonstration, but we're not going to stop them from their freedom of speech. >> reporter: we'll have much more here from civic park tonight on kpix 5 news at 11:00. kpix 5. we saw the same kind of violence last month. pro-trump and anti-trump protestors got into it at the same park in berkeley. faces bloodied, bodies bruised. in all, 10 people were arrested last month.
